The rapper YelaWolf will be performing at the University of Wisconsin–Stout on Thursday, Oct. 24, along with rapper St. Paul Slim.
YelaWolf started gaining more attention as an artist with his mixtape Trunk Muzik back in 2010. Since then, the artist has collaborated with many others such as Ed Sheeran, Big K.R.I.T, Diplo, Kid Rock, Lil Jon, Fefe Dobson, ASAP Rocky and Travis Barker of Blink-182. YelaWolf is also signed to Eminem’s record label, Shady Records.
Blue Devil Productions is excited to have YelaWolf for the fall semester’s big concert.
“We saw him as an artist on the rise,” said Blue Devil Productions Executive Producer Alissa Miller.
Miller also described how YelaWolf was chosen to come perform at UW–Stout.
“We thought UW–Stout would like him because of his involvement with Eminem,” said Miller. “ He also has good reach in the cities; we look there to see who is gaining popularity.”
YelaWolf will be accompanied by St. Paul Slim, a Minneapolis-based musician and rapper who has put out six records to date, on Advisement Day in the Great Hall of the Memorial Student Center. Doors open at 7 p.m. and the show starts at 8 p.m.
